The UEFA Euro 2024 semi-finals came to a close on Wednesday evening, with a late goal from striker Ollie Watkins powering England into a second consecutive final after a dramatic 2-1 win over the Netherlands.

Following three rest days, the Three Lions will take on Spain for their first continental crown on Sunday, July 14th.

The final will take place at the Olympiastadion in Berlin, with kick-off scheduled for 9pm Italian time.

Where can I watch the match in Italy?

If you’re planning to stay at home, there are a few ways you can catch the final.

Italy’s public broadcaster Rai will air the game on Rai1 (channel one on Italian TV sets), with viewing free of charge.

If you don’t have a TV in Italy but have an internet connection, you can also watch the game on Rai’s streaming platform RaiPlay online or on the RaiPlay mobile app.

Again, this is free to view, though you’ll need to sign up for a RaiPlay account in order to start streaming.

Satellite TV broadcaster Sky Sport Italia is also showing the final, but you’ll have to subscribe to the service in order to watch.

The private broadcaster’s basic football package currently costs €14.90 a month plus installation costs.

Subscribers will also be able to watch the match on streaming platform SkyGo.

Sports bars and fan zones

Euro tournaments aren’t just about football games. They’re also about sharing good and bad moments with other supporters and being part of a wider football community.

If you’d rather watch the game in the company of other fans, your best bet would be to head down to your local sports bar.

There’ll be no shortage of places broadcasting football matches in Italy, with at least one such venue in even the smallest towns.

People in some of Italy's major cities may also be able to watch the matches on big screens within dedicated fan zones. 

Milan for example has set up a Euro 2024 fan zone in Piazza Duca D’Aosta (in front of the Stazione Centrale railway station), open every day from 2.30pm to 11.30pm.

In Rome, the Testaccio Estate cultural space, in the bottom-left quadrant of the city centre, will show the final on a big outdoor screen. 

The Cinema in Piazza summer festival will also show the match on an outdoor screen set up at the Monte Ciocci venue, just north of the Valle Aurelia metro station.
